6 Module Course

The main course offering of Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine Institute (AIMI) is a 6 Module course that focuses on teaching the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Throughout the course, students will learn the concepts and theories of Qi and how to use those theories to not only expand the clinical approaches to treatment but also to assess patient progress and subsequent level of healing.

At AIM we recognize and respect that the true value of TCM is not to treat diseases but to enhance the ability of the patient to heal, and so we devote extensive time focusing to live practicums, using experienced Licensed Acupuncturists, so our students become efficient in not only in the theory of TCM but also in its practice.

Who We Are


The mission of the Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine Institute (AIMI) is to provide a quality education and affordable option for Allopathic Clinicians (e.g. Nurse Practitioners) who want to learn the art of acupuncture consistent with the theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Our secondary mission is to enhance the professional relationship and communication between allopathic providers and Licensed Acupuncturist in the community, which begins by having a common language. To achieve these goals, the program will present TCM theory in a way that provides perspectives that relate to the human experience.

We maintain a small student instructor ratio for all hands-on practicums, with instructors who are Licensed Acupuncturist with multiple years of experience and encourage clinical rotations with acupuncturist in the community. .
